Cruise Junky, would love to be included in the Orvieto tour. We're Joyce & John from Florida. Been into the city of Rome many, many times.

AHHHHHHH, just saw this, so sorry. Let me see if I can increase it to 10 instead of 8

On checking the website, there's an option for 10 so once I get an email back, I'll increase the number

This is what I've booked

We plan to take the train from the Port to the Stop near the Vatican, they an easy walk to St Peter's. You can prebook your Vatican Museum and Sistine Chaple tickets ahead of time and avoid the lines. (there is also a tour of the Vatican Gardens)

I am new to this board but would be interested in Orvieto tour on the Oct 9th sailing from Venice. I will be traveling with my sister. We have sailed several ties and have spent time in Rome on our own but have never been to Orvieto.
Can we join you?

I have not heard back from the agency I tried to contact about a tour to Orvieto and Umbria. We will be going with Dee's group instead. Really excited about these private tours. They are so much better than the ship's organized tours in that they can be personalized.

I never heard back from the company I tried to book for an Orvieto and Umbria tour. Howver we are delighted to be going with Loveboat 1977s group. Can't wait. We will be doing the transatlantic crossing on the Ruby this April so will be able to preview Madeira and all the other ports. Watch for Tom's new guide coming soon. All the other ports, except Messina, are already covered.

Once during a landtour I could see the Monte Cassino area from the highway but it appeared to be quite remote & is 80 miles from Rome and even further from the port of Civitavecchia. It may be closer from Naples but I have no way to know.

Searching online I did find a site about Monte Cassino:

http://nuke.montecassinotour.com/

I don't know anything about their tours or anything about them but it may give you an idea on options. They show a tour from Rome but there's no way to be in Rome by 0800 when the ship arrives in port at 0700.

http://nuke.montecassinotour.com/DAY...7/Default.aspx

Hopefully you'll find a tour for your husband but based on my limited research I wouldn't be too optimistic about touring Monte Cassino during our day in port.
